Talk about inspiring!

Bekah Miles was diagnosed with depression last year — but instead of letting it define her, the 20-year-old decided to do something in order to spark a conversation about the disorder.

The George Fox University student got an AH-Mazing tattoo (below) which at first glance looks like it simply says, “I’m fine.”

Upon closer inspection, you can see that if you read the ink upside down it says, “Save me.”

Whoa! Mind blown.

The brunette beauty then took to Facebook to share some insight behind the meaningful design.

She posted:

(Dear mom and dad, please don’t kill me over this permanent choice. I want you to hear me out.)Today, I am coming out…

What a beautifully honest message — with a touching tribute to Robin Williams too. Tissues, anyone?!

It seems the rest of the world was equally inspired with Bekah as we are, since the social media post has over 350,000 likes and nearly 300,000 shares. LOVES it!

After so much praised, the humbled student then took to FB once again and explained:

I think that it is time for me to make another status about my viral post. I never expected it to go beyond my friends…

Bravo! We’re not shocked that this inspirational tattoo has taken the internet by storm.

We are so impressed with Bekah’s innovation and activism. Way to SLAY girl!
